During our Wine Club Release Event this past weekend, we unveiled a highly anticipated and well received new wine; the RoxyAnn 2012 Malbec.
This wine exhibits pronounced flavors of blueberry, blackberry, currant, mocha, earth, cedar, and sweet vanillin oak. A medium-bodied wine that is rich, balanced, and soft. Silky tannins and a long persistent finish make it a wonderfully versatile food wine. Blend: 91% Malbec, 9% Syrah.
Visit the tasting room today to sample our newly released 2012 Malbec.

It’s been a while since I wrote anything for the “Winemakers Corner”, so here’s an update as to whatz up!
Currently in the vineyard we are in the middle of the bloom. As it sounds the vines have flowered and after they (hopefully) get pollinated they will start to develop into berries on the clusters. A little wind, some happy insects and voila’, Grapes!! Then hopefully not too much really hot weather and we will have some nice happy, healthy grapes to create the wines you love. It seems it’s going to be another “early” year, with the buds sticking their heads out into the light even earlier than last year. So if things remain the same we might be harvesting grapes as early as mid-August.
In the Winery we are putting together the 2014 Claret and Honor Barn Blends, and selecting which barrels will stay in the cellar until late winter/early spring to be bottled as individual varietals then. So as you might assume since we are putting the blends together we will be bottling in mid-July. We are tasting pretty much every day, discussing (arguing) over blend percentages, waving the “Magic Wand”, etc to get the best wines in the bottle for you all! So if you visit the Winery and see one of us wondering around with purple teeth, you’ll know we’ve been working hard, giving our all for the cause!
That’s all for now, another update when we know how the fruit is getting along during the summer months.
